Yamaha introduces the XSR900
Next stage in the Faster Sons project debuts in Milan
YAMAHA has just unveiled the latest phase in its Faster Sons project - the XSR900.
The XSR900 is based on the MT-09 and partners the recently launched XSR700, itself based on the MT-07.
The XSR900's design is its main highlight, and Yamaha enlisted Roland Sands to get it nailed.
Technically, it's the same the MT-09 - it's still powered by the same 847cc three-cylinder engine, and even though it's meant to look nostalgic, it still retains the MT-09 traction control, USD forks and electronics.
Yamaha said in a press release:
'Building on the success of the XSR700, The all-new XSR900 steps up to join the Sport Heritage range, again paying tribute to the iconic motorcycles of Yamaha’s past, including the first 4-stroke model,
'The simple, timeless styling of the XSR900 is perfectly blended with colour schemes and graphics to reflect Yamaha’s sporty DNA, its history and its iconic motorcycles of the past. Beneath the retro inspired exterior lies the latest and best of Yamaha’s technology, promising a true emotional riding experience.
'The XSR900 delivers on its authentic feel with minimal use of plastic resin parts, instead offering high quality components to reward the senses. A 14-litre fuel tank with aluminium covers takes centre stage ahead of a split level stitched seat and is complimented by front and rear aluminium fenders, aluminium side covers and a sporty aluminium headlight stay. A matt black exhaust system with contrasting polished muffler end cap provides a throaty soundtrack to any riding adventure.'
